Tea Party with the DHS Funding Committee

DHS cuts New York City's anti-terrorism funding. . . . and blames New York. Publius at Legal Fiction scripts the scene.

Unfortunately, this is beyond parody. I mean, look at this nonsense:

New York has no national monuments or icons, according to the Department of Homeland Security form obtained by ABC News. That was a key factor used to determine that New York City should have its anti-terror funds slashed by 40 percent--from $207.5 million in 2005 to $124.4 million in 2006.

. . .

The formula did not consider as landmarks or icons: The Empire State Building, The United Nations, The Statue of Liberty and others found on several terror target hit lists. It also left off notable landmarks, such as the New York Public Library, Times Square, City Hall and at least three of the nation's most renowned museums: The Guggenheim, The Metropolitan and The Museum of Natural History
